A cover of one of my favourite Dylan tracks Hurricane. This is by RocKwiz Orkestra, an Oz band and TV show. The two sisters on backing vocals are Vika and Linda Bull who are I believe are of Tongan he

Creedence didn't do many covers, mainly because their own stuff was brilliant, but their version of " The Midnight Special " is really great.

Sandy Denny wrote it, and sang it when she was in the strawbs. It appeared on Fairport Conventions Unhalfbricking album when she joined them think I knew that but I couldn't resist.

Now you're just being picky!;) Happy New Year Tongs!

Louis was great.  The whole of jazz, blues r&b music owes him a huge debt.  His cornet riff in Dippermouth Blues is the basis for much of what followed.

The two great British rock and roll records - " Move It " by Cliff and " Shakin' All Over " by Johnny Kidd.

absolutely

these two records were the cornerstones of British rock music. i'd put in 'Please Don't Touch' by Johnny Kidd as well

Louis's version of St James Infirmary is brilliant, but this is pretty good.  Tom Jones has a great blues voice.  Wasted at his peak in Vegas

Jools Holland and Dr John to a direct lift from Pete Johnson and Albert Ammons.  Exciting stuff

The Sensational Alex Harvey band did an album of covers "The Penthouse Tapes " some beauties on there . Delilah and Jacques Brels Next still my 2 favourites off earlier albums......like Mike Flowers Pops send up of Wonderwall , if only that it wound up the Gallagher brothers somewhat rotten apparently  , and that`s always a good thing .

I haven't read the whole thread so apologies if I've repeated anyones choice.

One of my personal favourites is 'Dub Side of the Moon' by Easy Star All-Stars. The whole of Floyds "Dark Side of the Moon" done in dub reggae - it really is superb. And not a p ss take but a homage.

Last week I heard this and fell in love with it:

I don't think so. " The Guess Who " did a good version but " The Twiliters " have a rough and ready version of it on YouTube. The bit of film the goes with their version makes " Viagra " redundant.

Personal taste and all that.

I’m not prejudiced, I hate everybody equally
